In brief: A luxury hotel in an 18th century property within 67 acres of land. Our highlight: Their wine list, which has been named in the top 500 in the world. Insider guide: There are so many lake views from this hotel that you won’t quite know where to look, with all but two of the modern rooms looking out onto the Lakes. There are cosy rooms in the main house or spacious outside cottage suites. Enjoy food direct from the kitchen garden in the Michelin starred restaurant, which, you guessed it, also has stunning views.
